Project update – Pictures of the clothing delivery to those those affected by flooding in Suai
At the beginning of July we reported on a emergency response effort by our Members in NT to flooding the Suai District of Timor-Leste.
Members Carlo and Maria Randazzo, organised 300 items of clothing for men, women and children affected by the floods and arranged for them to be transported for Darwin to Dili.
Collin Yap, a Member of the Order based in Timor-Leste, with the assistance of friends of the Order Edwin Yap, Lynne Ong and Diana Choo transported the clothing from Dili to Suai – a 240km journey that took over 10 hours, partly due to the terrible road conditions following the weeks of torrential rain.
The clothes are being distributed to the local community by the Sisters of St Paul of Chartres and the Canossian Daughters of Charity.
